”The music industry offers VR an exciting home. Pop stars like Taylor Swift and Björk have released 360-degree music videos, holographic versions of Tupac and fictional Japanese idol and CTM 2016 star Hatsune Miku have appeared in concert, and that’s only the beginning. Universal Music Group is heavily integrating VR into concerts, and the app GrooVR creates immersive personal environments that respond to whatever you’re listening to. This session will discuss the opportunities VR can bring to the industry, encompassing the views of three sectors that are making this possible, streaming & video content, music production & technology”
